loyal listener library

Presented on: Thursday, December 5, 2019 | 1:00–2:30 p.m. Eastern

Presented by: Robert Markette, attorney with Indianapolis-based Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman

The 2020 payment rule provides updates on the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM)—the new payment system launching for the home health industry on or after January 1, 2020. Expert speaker Robert Markette will explain how the changes CMS is making to PDGM will affect your agency and will detail the steps you’ll need to take to adapt.

The rule also contains several other major items that will affect agencies’ payments in the coming years. Those items include proposed changes to Requests for Anticipated Payments (RAP), the Home Health Quality Reporting Program and OASIS, value-based purchasing, and more.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how PDGM will affect the home health industry beginning in 2020
  • Detail changes to payment outlined within the new payment rule
  • Explain how the Home Health Quality Reporting Program will impact their agency

  • Details about PDGM and how your agency can finish preparations
  • An outline of how the new payment rule will change PDGM and how that will impact agencies’ payments beginning on or after January 1, 2020
  • Process improvements agencies should and should not make to survive PDGM
